Knitting! Mary's Merry Wristers

This is the first knitting pattern that I am going to share. It is very simple. I made these wristers for a good friend who requested a pair.
I used Drops Merino Extra Fine 100% Merino Wool Superwash. (Yarn thickness B) Weight 50g. It took less than one skein of 115 yards for this pattern.
Gauge 17sts x 24 rows= 4inches x 4inches in 3.5mm straight needles using stockinette stitch.
These wristers are worked as a rectangle and then folded in half and sewn. With 3.5 mm straight needles, cast on 34 stitches. Following a Knit 2, Purl 2 ribbing pattern, make 15 rows (starting the next row purl2, knit 2 to make ribbing). Using Stockinette Stitch, work a further 26 rows. Once again, work 6 rows in a knit 2 purl 2 ribbing pattern. Bind off following the ribbing pattern. Fold in half lengthwise with right side facing out. Starting from the bottom, sew up 3 inches and weave in ends. From the top, sew down 2.5", leaving a gap for the thumb to stick through.
Repeat the entire pattern again to make the second wrister. Block (except for ribbing) then put 'em on and enjoy the Fall weather!

They measure 7.5 inches long and 4 inches wide (when folded in half lengthwise) and will stretch to fit different sizes.

I hope I have not forgotten to include anything. As this is my first time sharing a pattern that I have created, please let me know of any errors or anything I should add.

If you are not feeling like knitting your own, I have wristers for sale from time to time on my etsy store at:
